Critical Issue Briefs

Healthy Aging Critical Issue Briefs

NACDD works with the Healthy Aging Program at CDC and other partners to create and/or highlight Critical Issue Briefs as backgrounders for journalists writing about aging and public health-related issues. These briefs provide journalists with current and easily accessible scientific and programmatic information about critical public health issues affecting older adults. The issue briefs can also inform professionals in the public health and aging fields about selected issues. We intend this series to provide not only contemporary information about key public health concerns for the nation’s older population, but to increase awareness about the work being done by CDC and its sister federal agencies in addressing the problems facing older Americans.
